The company says that it has seen a steady stream of partners join its ranks in 2018 in the LATAM region, including Protelecom Mexico, Tekchile Chile, WatchApp Argentina and Planatel Brazil, with additional partners in Colombia and Panama coming on board soon. It has also strengthened its presence in the region with the addition of a dedicated director of sales for Latin America, Rick Neumann.

For the tournament, Dejero is teaming with their LATAM partners to provide rental solutions and services, enabling them to transmit broadcast-quality content to their viewers back home. Broadcasters will be using Dejero EnGo mobile transmitters, connectivity services with local SIMs, and have access to on-the-ground technical support throughout the duration of the competition.

“It’s a privilege to support our Argentinian broadcasters with reliable connectivity as they bring live coverage of one of the most popular sporting events in the world to their viewers,” said Ricardo Bevcic of WatchApp. “Together with our innovative partner Dejero, we are providing cellular connectivity packages with fully tested local SIMs, alongside 24/7 technical support, that simplifies live transmission from different venues across Russia in a very cost-effective manner.”

“To deliver coverage of such a large-scale, globally-watched football tournament from 12 venues in 11 cities and spanning just over a month, our LATAM broadcasters need technology that is not only easy to use, but flexible, and reliable to ensure the shots are captured and delivered to their viewers at the highest quality some 12,000 kilometres away,” concluded Neumann. “Our rental solutions greatly simplify the logistics of securing equipment and wireless connectivity, and provide peace of mind with local support, giving broadcasters the edge over the competition.”
